MAHOPAC, N.Y.— It was a banner day for the Indians as they hosted the 31st annual Mahopac Invitational on Jan. 5 at Lakeview Elementary School.

The Indians split their squad up into Mahopac Blue and Mahopac Gold. Mahopac Blue placed first as a team with 69.65 points.

“It was a great team effort — everyone contributed,” Mahopac coach Vin Collins said. “Some top-flight gymnastics tonight and we really held our own.”

Callie Johanson finished second in the all-around with a score of 35.85. Jamison Castrataro won the floor exercise with a 9.0, while Mahopac Blue teammate Chloe Lee took first in the uneven bars with an 8.5.

“Callie was again solid in the all-around as was Jamison on floor and Chloe on bars,” Collins said.

Cassie Traina finished second in the vault with an 8.3. Sydney Hughes was third in balance beam with an 8.0.

“It was nice to have Cassie competing again,” Collins said. “She did well in vault and Sydney had a fine performance on beam.”

For Mahopac Gold, Hailey Woods was ninth in the all-around, scoring a 29.25. Sarah Citarella placed fifth in the beam with a 7.5.

Kylie Rosenquest paced Carmel Red with a third-place finish in the all-around with a score of 33.2. Ava Marsich placed second in the balance beam (8.15) and Kaitlin Maguire was fourth in the vault (7.75). Carmel Red finished fifth as a team with 62 points.

Mahopac has a difficult stretch of meets coming up as it takes on host Wappingers at Dutchess Gymnastics Center at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12. The Indians then face Lakeland/Panas at Dynamic Gymnastics at the same time on Jan. 17.

“The next couple of weeks will be challenging,” Collins admitted. “We have Lakeland/Panas and Wappingers coming up and they will be real competitive.”

Investigations Looking for Crimes

Let me state this up front: No matter what you hear or read, Trump could not subvert any investigation into General Flynn. He has the power to pardon even before any crime has been alleged. Remember the Ford pardon of Nixon? It was for any crimes he may have committed up to his resignation even though he was not yet charged with anything.

As for Flynn, no one has yet to articulate the crime ...

Model-in-Chief

Sometimes it’s hard to believe the nonsense that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth. He lies openly and often; he brags incessantly; he invents history; he spins conspiracy theories; and he changes his mind—often dramatically—in a moment’s notice. Only a few months into office, news organizations, diplomats far and wide, and even members of his own party have begun to ...

Long Live Memorial Day

Memorial Day, some would argue, has become a weekend-long, red-white-and-blue display of our discomfort dealing with the deceased. When I came across the following passage some years back on a now-defunct website, it struck me as a pithy, if slightly sad, summation of how the day has been denatured in recent decades…

Begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil ...

Going in Circles

Given the choice between using a regular door and a revolving door, I always choose the regular door. I’ve been that way since birth. OK, maybe not birth because I’m fairly certain there was no revolving door where I made my way into the world. But for as long as I can remember, I have been reluctant to go through them. No, not reluctant. Phobic. Truthfully, I am afraid of revolving ...
